Pregnancy with hydrosalpinx

Pregnancy with hydrosalpinx

Depending on whether a woman has one or both fallopian tubes affected by hydrosalpinx, the treatment for getting pregnant will be different:

Unilateral hydrosalpinx
it is possible to attempt natural pregnancy or artificial insemination if all requirements are met by both partners.
Bilateral hydrosalpinx
in vitro fertilization must be used, since the tubes are not permeable and natural fertilization cannot occur.

In both cases, it is essential to make a previous intervention to remove or block the tubes affected by hydrosalpinx, as the accumulated fluid can flow into the uterus and prevent embryo implantation.
